DESIGN AND FURNITURE IN FOSSIL WOOD
Born from the jubilant intuition of the Garzitto family, a historical name for timber in Friuli, the experience of teúkhō has its roots in the deep knowledge and love for wood, an extraordinary material that accompanies man in his history and journey. And it is precisely from history, thousands of years old, that today they draw their design creations.
The essence of teukhò's designs derives from incredibly rare and unique fossil logs, not yet petrified, which date back to between 5000 to 6000 BC. These mineralized logs demonsrate distinctive characteristics of the wood; they assume a particular elasticity, colouring and texture that would be impossible to reproduce artificially.
The charm of a material born in the dawn of time is enhanced with modern design, technology, materials and manufacturing techniques. The result is teukhò's collection of hand-crafted furniture and accessories. Unique objects shaped by nature over thousands of years and interpreted in a contemporary key by the teukhò's design team. Invest in a unique piece of art, produced with wood from a bygone era...
